On Saturday, my Mom and I visited the Meijer Gardens in Grand Rapids. Mainly, we went to see the Orchid Show (more on that later this week), but we also braved the frigid weather to stroll around and see some of the gardens in winter.
Right away, we noticed birds everywhere - hundreds of them - mostly hanging around on three tall trees.
What ARE they?
They can't be, can they?
By gum . . . they ARE!
Robins. Hundreds of robins!
(They are WAY off track. Ain't gonna be no early birds gettin' the worm around here for awhile yet.)
What a surprise.
